Filming for the latest edition of the Fast and Furious franchise will take place in the south of Thailand next month. 

 

"The Fast and the Furious 9" is hoped to be a great advertisement for the nature, culture and history of the kingdom, according to the Krabi governor.

 

This comes despite the fact that many films in the series feature illegal street racing and other crime.

 

Filming will be from 1st to 27th July in Phuket, Phangnga, Krabi and Surat Thani. 

 

It will bring in 340 million baht that will benefit Thailand and the local film industry, reported Naew Na.

Yesterday Piya Pestonji, the film's production manager, paid a courtesy call on the Krabi governor M.L. Kittibadee Prawit and TAT representatives at Krabi city hall. 

 

The governor welcomed the franchise as an opportunity for Thailand's culture, history and nature to be showcased to the world through the film.

 

Thaivisa notes that no one mentioned illegal street racing that has been a huge problem in Thailand for decades.

I hope it highlights some of the most dangerous driving in the world from the all 'cultured' locals in the movie.

From the official trailers releases Thailand does not feature much in the action scenes...

 

 

 

/Edit: Must have got the sequence numbers wrong... there seems to be another F&F 9 under production. See here.

Yeah... got that, that's why I edited my post. 

 

However YouTube returns tons of Hobbs and Shaw results when searching for F&F 9.
